Woodrow Wilson and Thomas R.
Marshall.representatives of militant
Democracy, won a great victory
yesterday at the polls. Their vote
in the electoral college may reach
nearly four hundred. The victory
was tho most overwhelming iu the
history of the country.
From the reports received up to
noon today, it seems that tho Demo?
crats have carried certainly HO of
the 48 State--, uno may possibly
carry several more in which the re?
sult has not been definitely deter?
mined. The Republican party was
sent down to third pince in many
States bj the surprising vote cast
(or R osevelt.
Indications are that the present
majority of 64 in the I louse of Repre?
sentatives will go to 100, and that
the United States Senate will pro?
bably be changed froma Republican
majority of seven to a Democratic
majority of one.
Roosevelt at midnighttelegraphed
congratulations to Wilson, and Taft
expressed the belief that the returns
insured the election of Wilson.
Already, locally and at large, are
heard from disgruntled Republicans
predictions of calamity under Dem?
ocratic rule.
Hon. H. A. White Spoke Saturday in
The Woodrow Wilson Club of
Harrisonburg brought the campaign
to ? dOM last Saturday with public
speaking. The principal address
was made by Hon. Hugh A. White
of Lexington. In reporting the ad?
dress the Harrisonburg News said,
in part.
"No Democratic speaker in the
State this year has ever hit the key?
note ol Progressive Democracy as
did Hon. Hugh A. White of Lexing?
ton, in his address at Assembly Hall I
Saturday atternuoo. Other speak?
ers have been content to sound the
slogan: to re-echo the party cries of
Otber days, to fall into the beaten
paths that have grown stale to the
majority of the people, but Mr.
White hit the spot.' His speech
(brough nnd through abounded in
ibe gospel ol' progress!veism and
sounded as if it were coming from
the lips ol Woodrow Wilson himself.
While other speakers confined their
n marks to the tariff. Mr. White is
not content with so narrow a piai
form. Saturday he went straight to
the point. He spoke forcefully on
the invisible ? ?overninent' that
lies in and be bi nd both the Demo?
cratic and Republican party, and
declared that Progressive Democ?
racy must take the government out
of the hands ol bosses and ma?
chines and give it back to the peo?
ple. He spoke about the power of Hel
inont and Ryan and a-inphasi/.ed the
fact that Woodrow Wilson n
Rvan s money at a very critical pe?
riod in bis career."
